“Couchsurfing”, being free, or against monetary compensation or other exchanges, is a temporary housing service. Links are created by an online service providing visibility for those wishing to offer a place to sleep. Thus, it is possible to rent or lease one’s “sofa” using the Internet.

By an appeal made on January 20, 2015, the landlord requests the termination of the lease, the eviction of the tenant and of all the occupants of the dwelling. The parties are bound by a lease from July 1, 2014 to June 3, 2015 at a monthly rent of $ 603.40. It concerns a building of 19 housing units on two floors. The offending tenant has been occupying a dwelling in it located on the second floor for about 10 years.
Many people dream of having an income-generating dwelling to enable them to have a residence in a big city while lowering their mortgage payments.

The parties agree that they are bound by a lease from 1 July 1998 until 30 June 1999 at a monthly rent of $ 375.00, renewed year after year, the last one of these renewals extending until 1 July 2015 at the monthly rent of $ 445,00.
For her part, the tenant points to July 1, 2010 as the beginning of the deterioration of her relationship with the landlord, when she refused a rent increase which she deemed unjustified.
